Benefits of Laminate
Durable and resists scratches + wear and tear.
Protected by a tough external layer and resin coating, a laminate floor is much stronger and more scratch-resistant, impact-resistant to dogs, cats, kids and even high heels.
Laminate flooring is a good choice for allergy sufferers, as the product does not trap dust and allergens and is easy to clean. But a small number of chemical-sensitive individuals may have reactions to the resins and glues used in the flooring.
Laminate is a great alternative to wood flooring as it has resilient properties that achieve the overall look of real wood on a budget. Some are more realistic than others however there is a large variety in selection to choose from.
